This may be bigger than deer hunting season in Wisconsin. Danica Patrick confirms she and Aaron Rodgers are dating! Packers fans will not be happy. They think Rodgers should live alone in a cabin and come out only for practice and games.— Jim Crandell (@JimCrandell) January 15, 2018
The dating news comes about three weeks after the two were first spotted at dinner together. Rumors heated up when Patrick joined the quarterback at his favorite restaurant, Chives, in the Suamico Village area of Green Bay. Since then, the two have been spotted having dinner together multiple times, most recently over this past weekend.
Both ended long-term relationships in 2017. Patrick and fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. ended their five-year relationship in November. There was speculation that the relationship ended because of her desire to get married and have children. She has never been shy about her wanting to have children. In fact, she froze some of her eggs at age 33 to ensure it would happen someday.
As for Rodgers, he and actress Olivia Munn ended their three-year relationship last April. It was described as a mutual break. He later said the relationship fell apart due to the difficulty of having their romance play out in the public eye.
It is an interesting statement considering he is now in a relationship with someone more famous than his ex-girlfriend. Maybe he figured out a way to deal with the public. His new girlfriend keeps nothing from her fans. She and Stenhouse Jr were all about appearing together in public.
Honestly I like Danica Patrick with Aaron Rodgers better than Olivia Munn. Pretty obvious both are in a point in their lives where they want to settle down. Why all the hateful comments? pic.twitter.com/vPia8C1xic— Emily (@EmmiBruce) January 15, 2018
Danica Patrick and Aaron Rodgers are officially dating but the two have known each other for years. They first met in 2012 at the ESPY Awards. The 34-year-old NASCAR driver admitted they spent the night talking about football. She revealed that she was a die-hard fan but told her future boyfriend she might root for his team. If the two are still together next fall, she will have to choose between rooting for her team or her main squeeze.
What do you think about the new romance between the race-car driver and the quarterback?
